TTC 6+ months December Support Thread - Page 47

It could still be EWCM. I usually have it (what little I get) a few days before o. If it's stretchy (and NOT semen) that's the most important part. From my understanding it could be cloudy or clear and still be EWCM.

TOTP... Are you kidding me? I did it again? Geez... to bad it doesn't mean anything.

Hey ladies! I'm late today because our #$^%# power went out this morning. I know itwas after 8:30 cause the alarm did go off, and I hit snooze, and it never came back on, so I slept LATE. Then I ran a few errands, cause without power, no computer, coffee, hot water for a shower... :

So now I'm back, the power is on, and I can finally finish my baking, have some (decaf!) coffee, take a shower...... Yay!

My temp dropped this am, I'm thinking I'm gonna get AF any day now. I just don't feel pregnant. (Not that I know what it feels like, but still, I think I'd juist feel something...) I feel PMS-y though, and I'm all broken out, so I figure I'll wake up on Monday (maybe Tuesday) to AF. : : :

Oh Ity, cyclebuddy, I hope AF stays away. :
I have a lower backache and cramps today so I am thinking I will host AF for Christmas. Merry F***ing Christmas right ? And with all the holiday fanfare I don't even think I am going to get my day to be bummed out and sad... I usually take one day to allow myself to grieve, I think it helps me face the new cycle fresh and hopeful.


Hugs and : good luck for everyone ! I do think we will get at least one Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Solstice/Holiday Miracle here... we are waaayyyyy overdue for good news.

Merry F***ing Christmas it is - Just went the the bathroom, and I'm spotting, which means AF is on her way. : :

AF here full force today.


Ity, does it usually come this soon? (I am secretly hoping this is implantation for you) Maybe this is getting our bodies in gear. It'll happen next month if not this one - I am SURE of it!!!
post #927 of 1084
ity...i KNOW how you feel...that's all i can say
post #928 of 1084
Sorry Ity... This TTC thing is a roller-coaster. I'll be praying for you for next month

I dunno - Back in highschool I was a 28-day cycle, *very* regular. But my shortest since charting is 29 days, and longest is 36 days. I've played with the detection method, OPK puts my O at CD19, advanced at cd20, and my average LP is 11 days. I want so (ridiculously) badly to believe that this is implantation, but... after this long, I just can't let myself think that. It'll just make it that much worse when AF does show up, kwim? I mean, I could be, I'll grant that, but... I dunno. I'm just not that lucky. OI just don't know what to think after all this time... :

: : : : :
(But not gonna hold my breath just yet...)

Ity & Lily - Sorry she found you.

Oceanmommy - Sorry it seems she's on the way. : I agree that we REALLY DESERVE some good news for SOMEONE!!!

Christy - Fingers are crossed tight. I think that good news for the board is going to come from you!

I know what you mean. I was filling out all the pre-appointment stuff for the RE clinic and I wanted to use all the MDC acronyms. But dh reminded me that ttc, cm, cd, etc. might not mean anything to them! I sent it all off and now I'm hoping that I can get a first appointment this cycle...

Hope everyone's doing well and having some fun. It is back to laundry and wrapping for me, but I do have a bit of a holiday mood!

Weirdness abounds... I have a crampy backache - which usually accompanies a heavy flow, but I'm still just barely spotting, ie, none on the pad, but if I hold the tissue there for a minute, I see a pale pinkish CM.
post #932 of 1084
I don't know what I'm talking about, but that makes me think of IMPLANTATION! I hope so, Ity.
post #933 of 1084
Gah! I dunno what to think anymore... I have too much baking and sewing to do to fret now. (But I WANT TO OBSESS!!!!!) : :

Ity Did you set your own cross hairs? I only ask b/c when I did it myself, it was blue lines. When FF did it they lines were red. It says you O'd 2 days later than your + OPK when your temp was the lowest. I know nothing about tempin but is it possible that your 11dpo and not 8? Again, i know nothing about it, BUT it very well could be implantation spotting and I sooo hope it is. Your going to test in 2 days right?
post #935 of 1084
Ity and Ocean, I think you should get together! Ity, I'm really hoping its implant spotting!

Playing around with my chart- If I have another high temp tomorrow, ff set crosshairs for Thurs, which is exactly when I thought I ovulated. Hmmmm...

I changed the method used to the OPK method, and it made my crosshairs blue, and now when I change it back to advanced, it keeps them blue. :
But I didn't put the crosshairs in, FF did.

Ok, I fixed it, and they're red now. Advanced setting gives me O on CD20, OPK method says 19 - I'm going by OPK since I missed a couple of temps when my thermometer went wonky on me. ok, so I'm now 9DPO.

Ity - I had crampiness and pale pink cm on 10dpo of my pg cycle. :

Lily - Sorry about AF I am probably right behind you. I always get af on Christmas.

Originally, I had my first week of temps discarded because it took that long for them to drop after the d&c. Since af was late with it set like that, and I had a bfn on what was 17dpo, I un-discarded them to see if it took o away. It actually moved my o date 4 days later, so now af is due tomorrow (and the bfn is now on 13dpo). I put the ovulation day poll on my chart - what day do you think I o'ed (if at all)?

I just want to either get af or a bfp. None of this waiting around crap. I finally get pg, then, as if it's not enough to miscarry, I get to sit on my pitty potty and stew about it for God knows how long this cycle lasts. (Sarah, you know this all too well.) I mean, really. Can't a girl catch a break? :

We hosted a holiday party / housewarming at our new house last night. My friend who got pg 3 months after we started trying was there with her 6 month old. : My other friend was there who got pg on her first try. She is due in Feb and complaining non stop. I understand she must be uncomfortable, but she knows I just miscarried and would give anything to be in her (uncomfortable) shoes. All I could do was rub her belly and tell her it will all be worth it. : I still haven't built up the nerve to accept her baby shower invitation.

I totally know what you mean, for me every day of this cycle is like the day after I miscarried, getting through it will be a huge milestone, although it seems somewhat unreachable at this point.

To top it all off, now I have the flu so any temps I get in the next few days will be completely meaningless. I still have gifts to wrap, we fly out tomorrow afternoon and I haven't even gotten the suitcases out to pack, I feel completely SHATTERED and miserable. Blah.
